This summer, sheer fabrics have been extremely popular. Sheer clothing offers the perfect opportunity to show a little skin while maintaining a certain level of modesty. Sheer fabrics are also perfect for the remaining hot summer months because they are typically light and breathable. You can layer them, or keep it simple.
This week’s Fashionista wears an ensemble that is a definite example of proper summer layering. She begins the look with a white crochet crop top and a black lace bandeau. She pairs the top with a cool, teal chiffon maxi. She keeps the jewelry minimal, wearing only a couple antique-inspired rings. She completes the look with navy flats and a brown leather backpack, both ideal for long strolls in the ancient streets of St. Augustine.
This Fashionista’s beauty routine is directly on trend for the summer, in color and style. She keeps her makeup simple with pretty, winged eye liner and a coral lip. Her nails are filed to a point and are polished in both coral and a periwinkle. Her hair is strategically colored in reverse ombre, seamlessly flowing from pink to blue to a deep brown.
If you’re inspired by this Fashionista and would like to introduce some sheer to your wardrobe, I suggest starting with a neutral colored maxi skirt. By keeping the skirt in a neutral tone you can reinvent it time and time again with various tops, shoes, jackets and accessories. Maxi skirts are also the perfect transition piece, and can be worn from summer to fall.
